Activating the Omnisend Integration
To send review request emails to your customers through Omnisend, Loox must be integrated with your Omnisend account.

- Click “Create Private API Key”:
- Select "Loox Product Reviews & Photos" for your API Key and click "Connect app":
- Copy your API Key:
- Inside the Loox App’s "Integrations" settings section, paste your API key under “Omnisend”:
- Click “Test” to confirm the integration is successfully working:
- When you receive the green confirmation that the API key is valid, your Omnisend account is integrated with Loox.
Creating a Review Request flow within Omnisend
Create a review request email workflow using a Loox trigger on Omnisend.
Loox will trigger your workflow whenever an order meets your email timing setting set on your Loox account.
To create a new automation workflow, follow the steps below:
- Under the Automation tab of your Omnisend account, create a new workflow:
- Click "Create from scratch":
- Name your new automated workflow. We recommend calling it "Loox Review Requests":
- Select "Loox - Time To Send Review Request" as the trigger for your workflow:
- If relevant, set up any filters you want to apply to the workflow, and click "Update":
- Select Email as the message type for your workflow:
- Edit your Email's content and click "Update":
- Once you have configured your email template, click "Start Workflow" to activate your new workflow:
- Inside your Loox app's "Collect Reviews" settings section, go to "Review request timing".
- Change your "Send via" email setting to "Omnisend":
- Your Loox Review request emails will now be sent through Omnisend.
Note: Setting your email timing to "Send via Omnisend" will stop your Loox Review request reminder emails from being sent.
Other follow-up emails Loox sends on your behalf to customers who submit reviews (e.g., Photo/Video reminder email, Discount for photo/video review email, Discount reminder for photo/video review) will still be sent according to your Loox account settings.
